Ubuntu 9.04 64bit serial monitor java crash

I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 64bit I've got arduino IDE up and running, I can upload code to the board no problem, but when I turn on the serial monitor and send something to the arduino the IDE crashes and I get a crash log that starts like this:

# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
#
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f28d708c333, pid=6170, tid=139813386271056

I have ia32libs and librxtx-java installed, and I'm using the librxtxSerial.so and RXTXcomm.jar from librxtx-java and not the ones included with arduino.

It worked perfectly fine in Ubuntu 8.10 64bit after making those changes.

I get the error using sun java 6, open jdk java 6 and sun java 1.5

Anyone have any ideas?
